More about me

I am an actor, singer-songwriter, guitarist, rapper and spoken word poet based in East London, with roots that go back to Ghana and Dominica. I have been hardworking and fortunate enough to win the Joseph Millson award, successfully making it through the rigorous interviews and workshops in the auditioning process. This award earned me a bursary/scholarship at the Actor's Centre where I gained invaluable training for screen and stage. I have experience of playing a lead role in a stage production that ran 2 times a day, for a full-run, at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. This was a great opportunity to work consistently on honing my craft as an actor. Exploring character relationships through Meisner technique, stage combat and contemporary dance has deepened my understanding and love of how a piece of art can evolve through the research and development process. I have applied my training in a short film, immersive theatre, for corporate training videos and voice overs, since. I am currently continuing my training at Homes Studies on a weekly character development course run by Laurence Mitchell.
